Question about Sony XM-222 Car Audio Amplifier

1 Answer

Can I use these to Power 2 x 200 w 8Ohms

I have 2 xm 222w amps leftover from a car I had. I need to power 2 x 200w 8 ohm Ev SX100 PA speakers. Since I have these amps lying around the house I thought I would convert them to be able to use them for these speakers. I have my audio source going to a 8 channel pro mixer which will go out to my amps then to the speakers. I am trying to cobble together a cheap system with what I have instead of spending 300 bucks for a rack mounted amp. Will they work? What Configurations should I use?

    Two 222W amps for 2 speakers, one per... 8 ohms a piece 200w constant... Serco2000 thanks for your quick reply. you think it would just be better to spend the money for the rack amp ($300 min)?

    Hi,

    The amp could work with a power supply ( 120v AC to 12 or 13.8v DC converter ), but it will need hi power ( 30 to 50 amp ) very expensive. maybe you could find a good deal on the net.

    What kind of speakers? 4 ohm or 8 ohm? 2 or 4 speakers ?

Hi,
I think you should, the power supply could cost up to that price ( for a good one 13.8v ) and you could have a ground problem for the amps, humming sound if not properly ground.
Your welcome.

How powerful should amp be to run the speakers?


200 watts is the maximum power handling capacity of the speakers. The amplifier should have a maximum power output of less than 200 watts (per channel) at 8 ohms to avoid over driving the speakers and possibly burning them out.

Can u tell me what amp I need to run my 2 x 400w EV sb122 bass speakers and 2 x 300w EV sx300w top speakers


The wattage listed on the speakers is the peak wattage the speakers are rated to handle. You need amplifiers that do not exceed that maximum. A 50 watt amp would drive them fairly well but you would do better with a 100 to 200 watt amplifier. Note: the speaker rating is peak power handling. Amplifiers these days are usually rated at peak output too but sometimes (old or very high quality) amplifiers are rated at sustained power (RMS). If you are working with one of these amplifiers you will need an amplifier with a lower rating. Also make sure the amplifier is designed to run the same load as the speakers. This is usually either 8 ohm or 4 ohm. Make sure the speakers and amplifier are rated the same.

I have a Crate PA-8 4 ohm 150 watt PA head that I run to four Peavy 10" PA speakers (two per side in series). It was very good, clean sound, but the speakers were cheap and may have been pushed too hard -...


150 watts should be easily handled by four Peavey speakers in the connection you described.. If the Peavey's are 8 ohms, then your total load was 8 ohms for the series/parallel arrangement which is well within the 2 ohm drive capability of the Crate according to specs.

I question if you really mean the speakers were in series? This requires a special cable to do this. Now if you mean they were "daisy chained" like the amp went to one speaker and another cable connected that speaker to another, then you REALLY had ALL speakers in parallel electrically which would be at the 2 ohm low limit of the amp... In either case, with only 1/4 of the 150 Watts to each, the speakers should NOT have been damaged. The amp MAY have been damaged. Try each speaker individually at a REASONABLE level to test.

If you plug into the effects loop out jack,OFTEN the connection to the internal power amp is broken so you might have to arrange a special cable as a wye to go back into the power amp as well as your external amp. In any case pwere ALL interconnected amps, etc from the same power source/receptacle for system safety.

  • 200W x 2, 20 - 20kHz, @ 0.15% THD + N, at 2 Ohms
  • 400W x 1, 20Hz - 20kHz, @ 0.1% THD + N, at 4 Ohms

  • Pulse power supply
  • Line & High Level Inputs
  • .3-6V Level Adjustment Control (RCA Pin Jacks) 1.2-12V (High Level Input)
  • 80 Hz, -18dB/octave Low Pass Filter Switch
And i would say that the best use of this amplifier would be for sub-woofers.

How to wire a sony xm-444 car audio amp so that it is a 2 channel 222w amp


Your amp is a four channel so you have 4 sets of speaker outputs. to bridge this amp to 2 channels is pretty simple, all your have to do is when connecting your speakers instead of using both +, and - from the same channel, use the + from the one channel, and the - from the adjacent channel. Do this for both speakers, if you'll notice you now have 2 empty - terminals and 2 empty + terminals, if so you did it right... Hope this helps, enjoy your amp.

If you had 4 single voice coil speakers you can create either of those 2 ohm or 4 ohm setups. If you run 2 of them in parallel you will get the 4 ohms. If you run 4 of them in parallel you will get the 2 ohms. In parallel I mean that you connect the positives together and run them to the positive on the amp and the connect the negatives together and run them to the negative on the amp. Let me know if you need more help. Good Luck.

Amp overheating


wire size depends on source, not load capability. your amp can provide 500 watts, so gage should be about 8, provided your speakers are 2 ohms each... you can measure them with ohmmeter. If you have 4 or 8 ohm speakers, you should get impedance matching transformers. Also, you should use a supply capacitor on power feed to amp of about 10 Farads...these are large and not cheap, but they provide "backup" power for heavy bass loads.
